    posted a message on [Challenge] The Mercenary

    Wow, thanks for all the love, everyone. I know I've not been a good steward of the challenge (I mean, who could have expected that it would need 6 years of keeping up with?) but it's great to see that I've made people's minecraft-experience even better than it was. I'll see if I have time to pull together all these suggestions and fix up the challenge for the modern era. Kinda nostalgic to see all the anticipation for full release when I made this.

    Nice work. I'm obviously not relevant anymore, but it really brightened my day to see you doing this, Pyana.

    I'm under the impression that your offspring will have at least the stats of its parents, and a certain chance that it ends up better.... It's not entirely clear though, you're right. Given how expensive breeding horses is, I'm not too eager to test this in my survival world, either.

    I for one hope the change is accompanied by a better way to manage trading. There's got to be some kind of middle ground between building a villager factory/death machine or not getting anything useful...

    Very nice! We still have one here. I kinda want to go and see batman... seems like it'd be fun in a drive in.

    I prefer normal stone brick because you can craft it in mass quantities, and it looks more pristine than the other two.

    posted a message on Minecraft 1.3 LAN problem
    I dunno if anyone's still reading this, but I had the same problem, and this is what solved it: Changing my network settings. Being a somewhat paranoid person, I usually put my network to 'public' settings rather than 'home' or something of the like. All I had to do was change the settings, so my computer was more open to others in the network. Not sure if this'll work in your case, but figured I should say it.

    I've completed the preliminary overhaul. In anticipation of the impending update, it is tailored to changes that will be included when the update comes in. I've added a list of necessary items before the challenge starts, since hunger makes the challenge almost impossible, and victory conditions to let you get back to normal minecraft. Hopefully you'll feel like you've "beaten" the challenge.

    As always, the changes and all are subject to your preferences. Feel free to let me know if I've nerfed the challenge with the changes, or anything else. Of course, I won't just up and change everything when you do, but it's nice to know, and will be taken into account. Mostly, I'm asking for feedback on the victory conditions and the preparation I've added, since those aspects haven't been tested or screened at all.

    Oh my goodness... Every time I think the thread has died, it comes back. I guess I'll have to go through the suggestions and finally revise this thing. I was kinda hoping that it would go away, but since it's still around, I'll adapt it to the changes... Sorry for being an absentee OP.

    Loved the challenge so far. Finished the Wood Age (Thank Heaven... can't stand using wood tools). I will gladly be advancing to the next age now.

    First, my Items, which I believe are all accounted for.

    The fort (which will be much bigger. Only so much lumberjacking with wood tools though). You can see the farm and the animal pen, both of which will definitely be moved and expanded soon. Then there's the citadel interior and my bedroom.




    Sorry if the pictures don't work. Still, I'm moving right along.

    EDIT: Also, wanted to ask... does the farm have to be inside the wall? Because it's mighty hard to grow things when you don't have water.

    If you build with a grid of pillars, you can contrast the main material of your walls with the "support" beams. That's what I do. It's easy to set up and looks alright, in my opinion.

    Like so...


    :wood: :wood: :wood: :wood: :wood:
    :log: :cobblestone: :cobblestone: :cobblestone: :log:
    :log: :cobblestone: :cobblestone: :cobblestone: :log:
    :log: :cobblestone: :cobblestone: :cobblestone: :log:

    That's my standard wall... using any material as the body and columns... hope it helps.

    Just wanted to say good work! I never could make a good city... The style reminds me of Mount And Blade cities.

    I'm confused here... you have a server up? Are you just letting us all know? Either way, I think this belongs in a different section... (Still, I'm game if you still need some people)
